Bobbito Garcia x PUMA pack 1 Bobbito Garcia x PUMA pack 2 Bobbito Garcia x PUMA pack 3 Bobbito Garcia x PUMA pack 4 Bobbito Garcia x PUMA pack 5 Bobbito Garcia x PUMA pack 6

Bobbito Garcia. A true pioneer of sneakers. Very few people (if any) are as knowledgeable as Bobbito when it comes to kicks. The New Yorker is truly a living legend, which is no surprise that Puma linked up with him to release this  Bobbito Garcia x Puma Pack collaboration.

What you see above are two Puma models that make up this collaboration, the Puma Suede Mid and the Puma Clyde. Both models come dressed in premium suede and nubuck to preserve the OG feel and look of the shoes. The Puma Suede Mid comes in Brown and Olive colorway, while the Puma Clyde opts for a Grey and Olive motif. Adding a personal touch to the shoe (Suede Mid) is the ?Where?d You Get Those?? print, which happens to be the name of Bobbito’s sneaker book. The Puma Clyde gets stamped with “Guard Up” to also get a personal feel. Available now, pick up the Puma Suede Mid for $130, and the Puma Clyde for $110.

The Danny Supa x Nike SB Dunk Will Make A Return Next Year

If you’ve been into sneaker for a good minute, you know that the Danny Supa x Nike SB Dunk is a OG Dunk that made its debut back in 2002. This original colorway of the Dunk, which was designed by skater Dany Supa came in a bold Orange, Blue and White color scheme. 15 years later, it appears as it the shoe is getting the retro treatment.

Supa recently signed a two-year extension with Nike SB, and one of the projects they plan on doing is bringing back this classic colorway of the Nike SB Dunk. Said to be releasing during the Holiday season of 2017, we are not sure whether the colorway will be placed on a Dunk Low or High. The OG pair came in low top fashion, but to be quite honest with you, low or high will still be welcomed with open arms. Are you looking forward to this release? Stay tuned as more info begins to surface.

I like the Blue pair the most. I think the camo on the toe on the other pair is kind of unnecessary. The materials look amazing, as usual.

The Nike Blazer Golf Tries Gold On For Size

When you think of golf shoes, you really don’t think of bold/bright/neck-breaking, well at least we didn’t. Times have changed as many golfers are expanding their horizons when it comes to their footwear of choice. With that being said, check out all the Gold placed on the Nike Blazer Golf.

The Nike Blazer Golf is actually a women’s model, but if any men want to rock this on the green, I wouldn’t blame you. The Gold hue takes care of the entire upper, which also includes the laces, lining and branding. Soothing the motif of the shoe is the White placed on the entire sole unit. Out now, pick up your very own pair for $150.

Author’s Take

I don’t play golf, but if I did, I wouldn’t mind picking these up! Need a matching shirt too! Kidding. Maybe.

adidas Reclaims Number 2 Spot In North America From Under Armour

In 2014, Under Armour leapfrogged adidas as the #2 sportswear brand in North America. This was a sign that adidas was losing touch with the North American consumer while performance-heavy Under Armour was staying consistent with its product and appealing to the growing fitness boom. Then came Steph Curry, who had a massive influence on UA’s upward growth, and it seemed that adidas would be mired in the #3 spot until a drastic change was made.

Jadakiss and Cam’ron were in attendance at Rucker Park in New York yesterday to launch the Reebok Question Mid EBC and A5 as a part of the silhouette’s 20th anniversary.

Cam’ron was there to support the EBC colorway, which was inspired by Allen Iverson?s first appearance at Rucker Park in 1996. Jadakiss was supporting the new Question Mid A5 sneaker, which was inspired by the original Answer V sneaker in 2001 where Jadakiss starred in the now famous Reebok commercial in 2001 when he rapped alongside Allen Iverson. Special appearances were also made by Jahlil Beats as well as Sway Calloway.

Both rappers watched the All-Star EBC game from the sidelines where one team wore the Question Mid A5 and the other wore the EBC style for a true head-to-head match up. The Question Mid EBC launched today at retailers nationwide and the Question Mid A5 will launch on Friday, August 15th.

ADIDAS TUBULAR INSTINCT 2 ADIDAS TUBULAR INSTINCT 1 ADIDAS TUBULAR INSTINCT 3 ADIDAS TUBULAR INSTINCT 4 ADIDAS TUBULAR INSTINCT 5 ADIDAS TUBULAR INSTINCT6

The near future will bring us new colorways of adidas’ newest Tubular model, the Tubular Instinct. Adidas Originals is already killing it with silhouettes like the NMD, but they like to offer different options for their fans.

This new version of the Tubular comes with a high top construction and a full suede upper. Knitted/woven detailing then lands on the heel while a semi translucent midsole/outsole keeps that Tubular spirit alive. Two of the newest color options include navy and tan/orange with contrasting midsoles and milky white outsoles. What are your thoughts so far on the adidas Tubular Instinct? Hot or not? Look for both of these colorways to arrive at retailers real soon.

Author’s Take

The design on this Tubular Instinct sort of reminds me of a Supra. That’s not a good thing since I’m not really a fan of Supras. It just looks too bulky.
